The less we say about this image, the better. So we'll keep it short. But we do want to say that when we looked down at the bay water below us, we knew we had to have it.

Submerged. Captured with an Olympus E-PL1 and 14-42mm kit lens at 36mm (72mm equivalent), f5.3, 1/1,000 second and ISO 400. Processed in Adobe Camera Raw.

We liked the shadows floating on the water. In the resulting image, though, they seem submerged, on the deck of some sunken ship whose railing is still intact.

The surface of the water shimmers and ... well, there is no "and." There's nothing else in the image at all. Just the cool greenish-blue of the bay.

The camera, we should note in conclusion, is in the hands of the unidentified figure on the right.
